    I second the cheap rootbeer and sometimes opt for the Dr. as well. I have even been known to mix with moxie. I have been marinading fresh pineapple in Mount Gay, Captain, Grey Goose, Chamborde, and Triple Sec all the week....they will become part of this weekends frozen daiquiris for the Mrs....I eat the pineapples directly from the broth.

    I'm more of a Jack and Ginger guy, but rum and rootbeer is good stuff too.

    The temp increased by 77° in 56 hours! They went from snow two weeks ago to 106°F yesterday. Dayum.

    I remember back in 94 in Chicago we went from -30°F to >100°F in ~6 weeks IIRC. Spring? What's that?

    YUCK! That's a little too extreme for anybody!

    My ideal temps would be mid 70's during the day, low 50's during the night.....but we rarely ever get what we want, how about it!

    I was doing a job in downtown Chicago in an office building in the eighties when the temp got to 103. Places were having to shut down and send people home all over because transformers were blowing like popcorn from the cooling load.

    Going to school in Chicago, I always went home for the summer. My first summer there, I flew back in June and 5 of the first 7 days were over 100. :eek:

    And me without A/C in my ghetto apartment. It got better. A little.
